Media Ownership in the 21st Century

Subcommittee on Communications and Technology
House Commerce Committee
Wednesday, June 11, 2014
10:30 am

Members will examine the media ownership landscape as it continues to evolve in the digital age. The subcommittee is expected to discuss the FCC’s inaction on the statutorily required 2010 quadrennial review of the media ownership rules as well as the continued relevance of the media ownership regulatory framework in general. Further, members will explore the commission’s decision to forge ahead with new rules on joint sales agreements (JSAs) and other media ownership changes without the completed quadrennial review.
